ITANAGAR, Mar 30: With the aim of felicitating prominent individuals in the field of Hindi art, literature and academics, the Arunachal Hindi Sansthaan (AHS) is organizing the first ever Rajya Hindi Sammelan – a convention on Hindi language – at the Dorjee Khandu convention hall here on Saturday.
Addressing media persons at the press club on Friday, AHS chairman Takam Sonia said the convention is expected to bring about a general improvement in educating and in promoting Hindi as the language most widely spoken in Arunachal.
Sonia informed that the organization seeks to re-introduce local folktales and indigenous stories in the school syllabus in Hindi.
The AHS is also introducing animated videos to assist in teaching children better Hindi writing and pronunciation. The organization will also release a quarterly magazine, Anurodoi Bhoomi, to promote Hindi in Arunachal.
“We are not forcing Hindi upon anyone. The reality is, Hindi is already widely prevalent in Arunachal. The convention will not only bring better Hindi education, it also aims to include folktales and indigenous stories in school education,” said AHS secretary Tai Tugung.
